Re-Unite South London is delivered by Housing for Women and was the original Re-Unite pilot project and is still going strong. The project provides in-reach to three prisons – East Sutton Park, Holloway and Send and offers resettlement properties in Greenwich, Southwark and Lewisham – providing families with stable and safe accommodation together, with all the support they need.
The project aims to provide families with the time, space and support necessary to re-establish themselves as a self-sufficient and productive family unit. The family is then usually ready and able to move into independent accommodation within 12 months of release.
Women who are accepted onto the Re-Unite South London programme will meet the following criteria:
- A local connection to the London boroughs of Southwark, Greenwich, or Lewisham (and want to live there on release). If no connection to these boroughs then women must have previously experienced domestic violence and wish to re-locate to one of these boroughs.
- Children in the care of social services or family and have a realistic hope of being re-united soon after release.
- In need of suitable accommodation and support in order to be re-united with her children on release.
- Must be over 18 years old.
- Must have less than 12 months of her sentence left to serve.
- Must have no diagnosis of severe mental health problems.
- Must really want to change her life.
